people before obama care could keep their individual plans. now, we're hearing from you guys as if obama care is the cause of something. if people are being hurt, we can work together to fix it. don't you think the old system had a bunch of losers? >> first of all, be law they can't deny people by care. under hipaa laws, there had to be an offer of something else. but there's a difference here. this is smp that you brought up. some are getting discontinuation letters saying you're not going to get it. some people will be able to go on the exchange and get a better deal, because they'll have a subsidy or something else because of their income. that part is new. the two groups are not exactly the same. some people here will not be able to be in -- so that's a concern, too. we're going to find a big chunk of people, and i don't seize an answer yet. >> here's the then. we need a baseline understanding that obama care is here to say. there's been a 3 1/2 year relentless campaign to defend, to repeal, to get rid of it. if we can all just agree, this is the law of the land, now how do we go for

for the latest mess up over obama care. >> if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. >> reporter: but for 14 million americans who buy private health insurance, that may not betrue. >> now they are being told they can't. that's a lie. >> reporter: julie prince just received a letter from her insurance company saying her private plan no longer exists. >> i'm not going to be able to afford anything if i ever get sick. >> reporter: why is this happening? because insurance companies, which offer cheap insurance like julie's left out basics now required by obama care like hospital coverage, maternity, mental health or prescription drugs and now are forced to cancel those plans and replace them. julie's new premium would be $210 a month. three times more than she pays now if she takes the insurance company's alternative. three independent health care experts tell abc news, julie and the others are likely to find plans just as cheap or cheaper on the marketplace when it is fully functional. and with better coverage. julie tells us that she doesn't
lose their health insurance, well, at least obama was honest with us. >> if you've got health insurance, you like your doctor, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, can you keep your plan. if americans like their doctor, they will keep their doctor, and if you like your insurance plan you will keep it. no one will be able to take that away from you. if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, will you keep your health insurance. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. >> he said period. even his punctuation lies. now the white house calls this a normal turnover, so was pompeii, but at least our leader, valerie jarrett, fought back tweeting from her cockpit within obama's cranium where she pulls the lever where she operates the sly left. he's pinky, she's the brain. the gist, plain it on the insurance company but that's like a landlord tripling your rent and then blaming you for leaving, but at least a 60-year-old man
of the issue. back in 2010 president obama said and then said many times over if you like your plan you can keep it. seems like there was an asterisk or something that should have been said there, but it may cost you a lot more money than you expect. there are a lot of people who didn't know that was going to happen. >> well look, the point is it may cost you more. it may save you. over all by your estimates people in this market will end up paying on average much less than they paid beforehand. once you factor in the tax credits they can get but that's not true for everybody. some will pay more, some will pay less. there will be a probably be a third of this market who pays more. >> again it's just--you can get why this gets under people's skin because that was never part of the sales job. it's not that it may not be real, true and necessary but people didn't hear that part. >> i mean, look, why are these people paying more? one is they had insurance that wasn't substantive. a lot of people had insurance policies where they said they'll pay the first $100 a day of your hospital stay. when
promise made by president obama that people who had an insurance plan that they liked would be able to keep the plan. here is an example of the exchange. >> responsible for overseeing this project is it you or your designee. >> i'm not pointing fingers at verizon. we own the site. the site has had serious problems -- >> who is in charge. >> the person now in charge is qssi -- >> who was in charge as it was being built. >> it was in charge up until -- >> who is the individual -- >> michelle snyder. >> michelle snyder is the one responsible for this debacle. >> excuse me, congress woman, michelle snyder is not accountable for the debacle. hold me accountable, i'll responsible. >> that exchange had to do with the contractor who was hired to built the site. secretary sebelius in intense questioning by representative blackburn. >> obviously she has had better days, have we heard from the democrats. what are they saying today? >> well the democrats of course are making sure that they point out instances where the site -- where the program is working. the affordable care act is working if
, obama looked waeb ee he wasn't able to keep the united states government open. also, on the other side of that, putin has asserted himself quite strongly over syria, you know, in sort of a mexican standoff, you know, over the chemical weapons. obama is the one who backed down. >> what about, we looked up and down this list and saw, it was angela merkel, just the one woman in the top ten. how does that, just curious, compare to women of years past on your list? >> yeah, angela merkel has also been the most powerful woman in the world, according to us, since we started doing this list five years ago. there are nine women on the list this year. that's up from six last year. and three are inaugural year. and i realize that does seem low, given there are 72 people on the list, but this is a global list. unfortunately, in many parts of the world, women are still somewhat disenfranchised. >> and finally, apple ceo tim cook, at number 19. i would imagine steve jobs when he was still with us, ranked much higher than that, no? >> i don't think he was that much higher. he never broke into the top
questions over promises made by obama. >> if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. >> reporter: if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. >> reporter: that's not exactly the case for millions of americans in the individual insurance market. an insurance industry source says the majority of americans with individual plans will find their policies changed or everyone cancelled under obama care rules. the white house says those who's plans change drastically will be able to buy more comprehensive coverage. >> one of the issues it was meant to address is the need to provide better security to those americans who had no other option. >> reporter: shannon travis, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> representative mike thompson sits on the house ways and means committee, he said covered california is working well but some of his constituents say they're not happy with changes due to the health care act. >> usually some of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle have mentioned are cancelled their grandfathered in programs and policies and issuing new
their policies even though president obama promised them they could keep them because they don't comply with the new plan. the website is getting better and they say will be fully operational in about a month and that those in the individual market comprise only 5% of those in the country and over time they'll be able to find better coverage and possibly health care subsidies when it's fully operational. what does massachusetts have to do with all this norah? >> it was in 2006 that they had to have coverage. this website had a tough rollout. people waited until the last minute and some parts of the law were changed. that will be the president's message today. bumpy rollouts are nothing new. that's a tough message but it's the only one the white house has. norah and charlie? >> major, thank you. the national security agency director general alexander said europeans actually shared those phone records with the u.s. >> to be perfectly clear, this is not information that we collected on european citizens. it represents information that we and our nato allies have colle

of americans will be able to keep their health care as it exists now under obama care. and for the small number of 5% of the insurance market that -- >> do you mean they knew? >> that's a really good question. john mentioned the word credibility. i think there's an accretion of things happening that make it feel like obama care is unfolding in a wait administration never even saw. we have the web site disasters, we have these numbers of people who are losing their plans, which these numbers seem much higher than anything that was suggested. and i think americans, certainly i'm getting the sense that the administration kind of really didn't see clearly what the consequences of its own signature initiative would be. >> i don't know about that, frank. you know, this thing about not knowing things is getting a little old. >> i'm not saying it's okay. >> doesn't know about the irs, nsa, obama care. >> it's not okay that it wasn't known. >> or the commander in chief of the united states. >> it may not be a good look, but i think this is a missed opportunity, right? the vast majority of the people who
